In this title, a three-tier approach is presented: fundamental dynamical concepts of climate processes, their mathematical formulation based on balance equations, and the necessary numerical techniques to solve these equations. This book showcases the global energy balance of the climate system and feedback processes that determine the climate sensitivity, initial-boundary value problems, energy transport in the climate system, large-scale ocean circulation and abrupt climate change.

Review quote

From the reviews: "Introduction to Climate Modelling ... focuses on the fundamental dynamics of the atmospheric and oceanic circulations, along with approaches to their mathematical formulation and numerical treatment. ... most valuable for ... much broader range of scientists who will use climate models in their work and could benefit from an understanding of their internal complexities. It also makes a nice approach for anyone ... who wants a better understanding of an area of science which has taken on a role in important public policy decisions." (Danny Yee, Danny Yee's Book Reviews, August, 2012)
